Have you ever sewn something that looks much better in your head than it does in real life?
Don’t get me wrong; the fabric is adorable, and I love both pieces individually. They even look great together on a hanger,
but when Aurelia finally tried them on, I just couldn’t get them to look “right”. Is that weird? (Well, weirder than I usually am?)
I think it might be the length/slouchy-ness of the Celestial shirt from Figgy’s that’s throwing the look off. I tried tucking it in, folding it under, even knotting it to the side, but I still couldn’t style it properly. The top is just a bit too blouse-y to go with the fullness of the skirt. (or at least that’s what I’m telling myself) Aurelia loves how soft and comfy it is though, and it sure looks great with these little jean shorts!
On the other end…This sweet little Paris skirt from Nothing Too Fancy has been on my Girl’s Style pin-board for ages (seriously, it’s allll the way at the bottom!), and I knew I had to incorporate it into this collect somehow. I mean, there’s only so long you can fawn over a project a simple as this before you run out of excuses to not make it. (shh, don’t tell the rest of my pins that! They’ll start to expect things.)
Even Corbin seemed to enjoy it!
